Former NYPD Commissioner Bernard Kerik Offered Plea Bargain
November 03, 2009
On the eve of his corruption trial ex-NYPD top cop Bernard Kerik was offered a plea deal that would get him out of jail in under three years, the Daily News has learned.
Kerik faces three federal trials, the first on charges he got $255,000 in apartment renovations from a mob-linked contractor seeking a city permit.
The second trial, also in White Plains, involves charges of hiding more than $300,000 book fees, royalties and free rent from the IRS.
A third case filed in Washington federal court charges the former NYPD commissioner with making false statements on his application when President George W. Bush tapped him to be Homeland Secretary.
Under the proposed deal, the cases would be consolidated and Kerik would face a possible sentence of 27 to 33 months, a source familiar with the ongoing talks said. Kerik could be sentenced to 20 years if convicted.
